We all do it. Create waste and contribute to landfill. What actions are you taking to make a difference?

Every year our relentless hunger for consumerism, is leading to global disaster.

From our oceans to space, we humans like to leave behind our footprint and a whole lot of rubbish. According to NASA, there are over 500,000 pieces of debris or space junk orbiting the earth.

There is now believed to be 5.25 trillion pieces of plastic debris in the ocean alone. With 269,000 tons floating on the surface, the rest is in plastic microfibers which litter the deep sea. The ocean is a major source of food and medicines and is a critical part of the biosphere.

Did you know that shoppers worldwide are using approximately 500 billion single-use plastic bags per year?

Our team at CFAA is on a mission to create as little waste as we can in the month of June. That means, no takeaway coffees, no plastic bags and recycling all that we can to reduce our team footprint.

We have some active gardeners among us and great cooks, sharing food saving ideas and healthy recipes.

Thanks Dr Hu for sharing your delicious apples from your Donnybrook orchard.

Let us all honour our children and grandchildren on United Nations World Environment Day on the 5th June and World Ocean Day on 8th June by rugging up before switching on the heater and ditching the plastic bags.

Make better choices for our beautiful blue planet.
